Hypertrophy With Moderate Forarninal Stenosis Bilaterally
Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more
At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?
Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment. ...Read more
Mri-very mild broad disc bulge with posterior element hypertrophic changes causing minimal neural foraminal stenosis inferiorly. What does this mean?
"Arthritic spurs": The radiologist that read the MRI is simply referring to arthritic spurs that are growing forward into the small space on each side of the spine where the nerves exit. Keep in mind that this is very common in people with no pain at all. This is only relevant if it correlates with your symptoms and physical exam findings. ...Read more

Disc desccation with posterior diffuse disc bulge at L5-S1 level mildly indenting the-cal sac and moderately narrowing bilateral neural formina?
Pushing on Things: If these herniated disks are causing pain then getting epidural injections may be helpful. However if you are doing OK and no pain, then I would leave them alone. Eventually they will heal as much as they can, but can take as much as 6-9 months to resolve. Unless you are getting increased pain or weakness, I wouldn't worry. Also start core strengthening exercises when you are feeling better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have moderately severe l5-s1 L4 disk degeneration. Mild disk bulge. Mild bilateral posterior facet and mild bilateral stenosis per MRI and hips hurt?
What does Degenerative change,greatest at C5/C6 with moderate spinal canal and bilateral moderate to severe neural foraminal compromise mean?
Foraminal compromise: Implies the 6th cervical nerve root may be compressed ( leading to potential muscle weakness in the upper arm and or radicular pain down to the thumb or index finger ) Further information is needed ( exam findings ) to sort out the significance of both this and the central canal stenosis ( I would discuss this with your neurologist or neurosurgeon ) ...Read more

Mild facet hypertrophy,lig flav thickening L3-L4,mild facet hypertrophy L4-L5,moderate facet hypertrophy L5-S1.Will joints deteriorate more?Outlook?
What does hypertrophic change at the T9-T10 facets bilaterally -severe left, moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Lots of pain
Cause for back pain.: It means your main nerves coming from your spine that run through your vertebrae can be suffering of compression because overgrowth of the bony area is squeezing it/them.The pain is caused by the nerve itself that might be irritated by contact with the vertebra.Nerves transmit sensation so pain is triggered this way. F/u with your doctor to create a plan of action for treatment. ...Read more

Grade I spondylolisthesis and degenerative diffusely bulging disc at l5-s1 with bilateral foraminal stenosis, what to do?
Depends: Grade I L5S1 spondylolisthesis and bilateral foraminal stenosis- no intervention needed if no referable symptoms. Otherwise, physical exam including neurologic function to rule out neurologic deficits. With no referable significant deficit, physical therapy is usually a good start. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does acromioclavicular arthrosis with inferior spurring causing moderate outlet narrowing mean?
AC joint arthritic: This is a very common finding/wording on a MRI for shoulder pain.Basically it means your ACjt.(where your collarbone connects to the scapula bone or acromion)("shoulder separation joint") shows some narrowing and spur formation and may be 'impinging' on your rotator cuff tendon(s) w/ your arm in overhead or away from the body(abduction) positions.See an ORS for examination/correlation.GL! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My xray result showed minimal lumbar spondylosis L5-S1 with mild disc space narrowing and endplate sclerosis and small ventral osteophytes. Meaning?
Meaning?: Presumably you didn't just wander into a radiology department & made an impulse purchase. Your doctor ordered the x-ray for a reason. What was it? The x-ray isn't the patient; you are. It has no "meaning" by itself. Your doctor is ethically obliged to interpret the test AS IT APPLIES TO YOU. Please repost & include what your doctor told you; or, if you haven't asked him/her, please state why not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
